Gadi Geiger: Visual and Auditory Perceptual Modes that Characterize Dyslexics
Talk by Gadi Geiger or MIT to the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at UC Berkeley.
I will describe how dyslexics’ visual and auditory perception is wider and more diffuse than that of typical readers. This suggests wider neural tuning in dyslexics. In addition I will describe how this processing relates to difficulties in reading. Strengthening the argument and more so helping dyslexics I will describe a regimen of practice that results in improved reading in dyslexics while narrowing perception.
